Ian Wagstaff

Ian Wagstaff began writing motor racing reports in the early 1970s, having started work in the production department of ‘Motor Sport’ magazine. He went on to become Press Officer at Silverstone circuit towards the end of that decade. He has been a freelance journalist since 1986, writing for The Economist Intelligence Unit and Financial Times Automotive Division as well as the motor racing press.

Ian has twice won the Guild of Motoring Writers’ Montagu of Beaulieu Trophy as well as its Pierre Dreyfus award, and he has also received the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association’s ‘Book of the Year’ award. He is particularly intrigued by both endurance and Indy car racing and has written books about the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Indianapolis 500. As an antidote to motor racing, he is an amateur French horn player.
